The answer is no. Issues are created when you switch your new car original oil(not synthetic) out with only a couple thousand miles and replace it with synthetic. What happens is the rings never have a chance to develope a nice seal. With BMW, the engine is designed from the start to use synthetic so it's not a problem.
